I dunno as I`ve never did it that way before. Takes too much time.
I always adjust them with it running that way I can do one of two things.
I can do the old hot rodders trick of zero lashing the set
Or I can adjust them in the regular fashion and hear what the engine likes
as the tone changes. When I find the sweet spot I leave it there.

Here's a link to adjusting them. I always set mine with the engine off, and have never had to readjust them after it's running. I hate the mess of doing them running!
